A selection of organisations with whom I have worked in the last 10 years


Nigel was a fantastic coach and facilitator. So subtle, patient, and effective.

Rhys Evans, Management Consultant

Thanks a lot for your time and efforts – and even more for the knowledge you shared with us. It was the best training I’ve ever participated in.

Aleksandr Lavrentjev, Business Development Manager, AS-4Finance

Nigel’s facilitation and training style is hugely interactive. His down-to-earth, fun and informative approach helps build openness and trust in a group dynamic – building connection step by step. He will most likely encourage you to think a little differently – to take a fresh perspective so don’t get yourself too comfortable! 🙂

Janice Keyes, Mind Over Matter Coaching Ltd.

One of the reasons Nigel is such an excellent speaker, trainer and coach is that he embodies and models the approaches he puts forward to clients.  He truly is the change he wants to see in the world.

Simon Lawrence, Managing Director, Transform Consultants Ltd.

Instructive, energising and always entertaining, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Nigel as a skilled and professional coach for teams and individuals alike.

Jonathan Miller, Operations Director, Tornado Wire Ltd

I would just love to have just a small piece of his ability to provide profound, inspirational and timely perspectives of improving the world of being human. He is able to provide an appropriate balance between seriousness and a lightness of touch that encourages me to really listen to what he is saying.

Bernard J Thorpe, Industry Leader, Magistrate (retd)

Nigel has been engaged by Romec on a number of occasions for 1:1 mentoring, motivational speaking at our National Management Roadshows and as a facilitator at Team Building events. The results and outputs are always excellent and the feedback from senior and front line managers is impressive.

John Vince, Director – Soft Services, Romec Ltd

Nigel’s set of abilities, and all the associated skills, techniques (and possibly wizardry!) behind them make for a truly fascinating, effective facilitator in any situation. He makes a positive difference, and you are greedy if you ask for more than that.

Andy Wood, Senior L&D Manager, LF Europe Ltd

Nigel’s work helped us to break down resistance to change and build adaptable and resilient employees.  His programmes have the ability to both motivate and inspire. This enables a faster pace of change which is why we continue to use Nigel’s services again and again.

Ruth Gawthorpe, MIoD, Owner “The Change Directors”

I’ve known and worked with Nigel for many years and have always found him to be knowledgeable, dedicated and very professional.

Chris Holmes, True Colours Ltd

Nigel’s leadership development work and follow-up coaching have helped many teams unlock unhelpful mental models that serve to impede our progress, freeing us up to see the possibilities to do even more.

Duke Maines, Principal Consultant, McKinney Rogers, USA

‘Top bloke’ + ‘amazing depth & breadth of knowledge’ + ‘awesome trainer’ = Sir Nigel

Andy Cope, Director/Owner, “The Art of Brilliance”

Even though I think I have a good understanding in leadership & followership, Nigel handled the topic with wit in a fresh and new angle and I had great new insights. I believe all leaders, no matter how experienced they are, can learn something from Nigel.

Ylva Ahlander, COO, 4Finance AB, Sweden

Nigel is one of the best coaches I have the pleasure to know. His authenticity, hardworking attitude and coaching skill set make him a perfect choice for any individual or team wishing to develop and grow.

Edward McFarlane, Partner, Votive Leadership LLP

Nigel breathed new life into our annual managers’ roadshows and has helped instil new levels of self belief and confidence across the company.

Peter Walls, HR Director, Romec Ltd.

I asked Nigel to fly to Madrid and provide a Leadership training to the Senior team in my company. They all enjoyed the course and Nigel’s approach. Since then, I have seen them more motivated around leadership, coaching and managing people in general. They are aware on how they impact their teams and take more responsibility on how they influence their people.

Beatriz Arderius, HR Manager, Vivus Finance Spain

Nigel helped me to gain insight in my strengths, weaknesses and motivation in life. He gave me tools and techniques that I use regularly to reflect on my progression. He truly inspired me to be the best I can be.

Remi Verhoeven, IT Analyst, Accenture, NL

If you are looking for some innovation in your training, you won’t be disappointed with Nigel’s approach.  The combination of a truly engaging delivery style and ability to see things from a new perspective, backed up with many years of practical on the job experience is a real winner.

Paul Lloyd, Director, True Colours Ltd

Nigel has that rare ability of being able to deliver quality learning experiences to delegates of all ages and experience and is equally at home working on the shop floor or the Boardroom. He is an outstanding presenter, a dynamic coach and a wonderful writer using his sharp wit and humour to powerful effect.

Keith Stanton, Managing Partner, Votive LLP

Nigel is extremely enthusiastic about his work which is infectious. I certainly would recommend him for any coaching or training.

Denis Kerrigan, Corporate Trainer, North American Breweries.
